While we’re anxiously waiting to find out who the next Red Sox skipper is going to be, I would like to reflect on one of the biggest things I miss about the baseball season – the NESN broadcast with Don Orsillo and Jerry Remy. Since I don’t get to a lot of games down at Fenway, I rely on this team to keep me informed and entertained. And they never fail to do either. Especially the entertaining part.
Does anyone remember the game against Baltimore this past season (early July) with the infamous Boob Grab? Unfortunately, I missed it live (much to my dismay), but a friend emailed me the video not long after it happened. I nearly peed my pants laughing. Their reaction to this incident is exactly why my love for them is deep.
If you missed it, take a look at this slightly garbled video.
Nothing makes me laugh more than when Don and Jerry completely lose their cool during a broadcast. First there’s complete silence, and then Don tries to make a go of it, but can’t speak without bursting into laughter. And hell, it takes Jerry nearly two minutes to pull himself together to even speak – and then he wants to “send it down to Heidi.” Now that, my friends, is entertainment!
Is it April yet?
